Sounds like transplant and hair loss would make a good new topic to start. Any takers?

Congratulations @johnshaw. Might I call upon you to support members in the Addiction & Recovery group if someone is in need of your inspiration and support? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/addiction-recovery/

13 hours ago · Packing question: What did you have ready for "the call"? in Transplants

Hi all, I'm bringing this discussion back to top because we want to gather more of your tips to write an article for the Mayo Clinic app. Please share your tips to help other transplant recipients feel better prepared. What should they pack to be ready for the call that they have to get to the hospital for their transplant? The best advice for patients comes from patients (and their caregivers), like you: @contentandwell @gaylea1 @rrichardparker @parmcat @jeanne5009 @jerrydrennan @ca426 @amyintucson @luckonetj @glinda @jbilton @danab

What did you pack in your bag to be ready for the call? What important thing did you forget? What would you advise someone not to bother packing?
For those of you who are waiting, what's in your bag?

20 hours ago · Ways to Advertise: How Did you Find a Kidney Donor? in Transplants

Hi Judy, This is a great topic to start. I expanded your title a bit.
The Recipient Toolkit on the Transplant Page is an excellent resource that can provide you with some additional information, including how to find donors and where to look and advertise.

I'm bringing @jolinda @IWantToBelieve and @jtannen1 into this discussion as they have first-hand experience in looking for living donors.
Judy have you considered using social media, like Facebook or CaringBridge to look for a donor?
